Home! :)

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

Carly and I are home. It’s so nice to be back.

Thanks for all your kind comments, I’m sure I’ll think of something interesting to say about our hospital stay soon.

For now I’m just tired, and probably should be napping.

Deeder’s down for what hopefully will be a lengthy nap–he’s been a little confused with everything being different. Within a couple days things should be more routine and comfortable for him, um, I hope!

Carly’s doing very well so far.

She fed well in the hospital and we did get some good sleeping done last night.

Jen from Darren’s work brought lunch over for us, that sure was good of her to do! She also came over when my labor was starting and took Deeder to his music class for me.

Anyway, here are a few pictures that I took in the hospital.

Ah yes, the family big mouth :P

Checking stuff out.

Elf Ears!

Big bro and little sissy. :)

Photo Hunt: Self

“Yourself or Part of You” is the description of today’s Photo Hunt picture assignment.

I thought I’d put up my 39 Week Belly Shot. My due date was yesterday. As you know, right now I’m in the hospital holding this baby. :)
Her name is Carly Annalise.

I must admit, I am one of those woman who doesn’t bother (hasn’t even tried) setting up the tripod for weekly belly pictures. What’s wrong with the ole standing on a chair in front of the mirror in the bathroom method, anyway? Um, yeah. I can think of many reasons. Number 1: You can’t help but get a lousy picture when you use the mirror instead of a tripod. Little effort produces little quality! Oh well, at least I have a little record. :P

Baby Update

Friday, May 30th, 2008

She finally arrived! This is daddy writing and not the famous Laura. Carly Annalise-Taron Harr 6lbs 12 oz and 19 inches. May 29 08 7 45 pm. We made it to the hospital at 7pm and 45 min later well…. Mommy was absolutely incredible, She never lost her smile, No not even once. We had a friend with us to take Diederick when things got wild but he would not allow anyone to be in the way of him and his mommy He was by her side all the way. We went to visit this morning and all was well, Diederick knew Carly was his baby sister. While mommy was lying down waiting for baby to come Diederick said “Baby Baby” pointing to mommy. He wasnt surprised at all to see a baby 30 minutes later. Carly couldnt ask for a better brother nor can anyone compare to her mommy. Mommy will be home tomorrow and I apologize for no pictures yet.

Guess What?

Hello, Laura’s friends. :) Gramma Momma here with the news Darren gave me yesterday. I haven’t gotten to talk to Laura yet, but she and Carly Annalise Taryn are doing just fine. Here are the stats:

  • Birth time and date: 7:45p.m. on 5/29/2008
  • Birth weight: 6 pounds, 12 ounces
  • Birth length: 19 inches

I hesitated to post, since I haven’t gotten to talk to Laura yet, but I know she wants you all to know that everything is AOK. Thanks for all the love you show my girl!

Here is a factoid for you: Laura weighed 6 pounds 5 ounces and was 20 inches long at birth. As you know, she is a twin, so I think that’s fairly large for a twinny. :)

I haven’t seen any pics of Carly yet. Maybe Darren will put some up? (Hint, hint)
